St Neots are celebrating title success – courtesy of their Men’s 4ths.

Geoff Watts’ unbeaten side wrapped up the East Men’s League Division Six North-West (South) crown in style courtesy of a derby triumph last Saturday.

Sean Sanderson hit a hat-trick in a 4-0 victory against St Ives 4ths, with Danny Rowland-Cox also finding the net.

That was one of only two wins managed by the club’s male sides last weekend – the other came from the 1sts in Division Three North-West.

It also featured a hat-trick with Danny Stephenson doing most of the damage in a 5-0 success against Cambridge City Vets. Bradley Forsdick provided the other two goals.

A brace from Kevin Sequenza helped the 3rds draw 3-3 with Cambridge City 6ths in Division Five North-West. Sam Setchell also struck in that deadlock, but the 2nds went down heavily, 5-1 to Cambridge Nomads 2nds, in Division Four North-West.

Three St Neots ladies sides are also chasing honours this season.
